Our development agency uses Shield for 100+ of our sites and it’s perfect!
First of all, thanks for spending your time developing such a great plugin. It really is packed with a lot of very useful functionality. Our agency manages around 130 sites (if not mistaken) and we’ve installed Shield in dozens of them and will try to have it on all our sites soon, and it has been extremely helpful. For us getting ShieldPRO is a no-brainer because it’s one of the best security plugins (if not the best) and very affordable compared with other options.
It frustrates me to see you getting bad reviews from users who clearly don’t know what they’re doing on WordPress, or who don’t realize the impact of reviews and easily give it a one star just because they cannot afford it.
I wish you’d reach out to YouTubers to get more visibility because more people should know about Shield and its great features. I asked one of the smaller WP YouTubers if he knew Shield (his YT name is “Matt – WPress Doctor”) and he said he had never heard of it. He also said “Remember, not the best product wins, the best marketing wins! If they reach out to me and send me an e-mail I might make a video about it”. So you should reach out! 🙂
If you manage to reach someone like Paul from WPTuts, you’d get so much visibility. They probably won’t review your plugin for free but it might be worth it. They have tons of loyal followers who take advice from them seriously.
Can’t wait to see what else is in store with Shield in the future! I’d love to see the options to customize the robots.txt file from Shield directly, for example.
Anyways… Thanks Paul and wish you the best!
